If you have a vegetarian visitor, what would you consider reasonable in catering

for them? A person I know had an ex school friend coming to visit him. She demanded that he buy a new frying pan to cook her food in because all of the ones he owned had been used to cook meat with. I think this is a bit much. I have a couple of vegetarian friends and when I am cooking I keep their food separate but if they asked I wouldn't go out and buy utensils just for their use. Of course this young lady obviously hadn't considered that the crockery and cutlery had also previously had meat on them. Also that everything is thoroughly washed before the next meal anyway. I think if she felt that strongly about it she should fetch her own frying pan. What do you think?

I agree with you that it was a bit much demanding that he buy a new frying pan! If she was that picky, maybe she should have brought her own food. :)

If I were a strict vegetarian and visited some one who was not I would buy or bring my own pan and cuttig board. It is thoughtless to expect to visit some one home and demand that they cater to your way of living with out doing some contributing of you own.

I would say it's kinda hard. My Aunt's husband is a vegetarian so whenever they visit our house, I panic and rush to a vegetarian resto to buy him some food. Vegie food 's names are kinda hard to remember. All I could remember is "Pinto Beans" and he really loved it.

Thanks for the response, but I don't think you fully read through what I was talking about.
